I think you misunderstood what I was saying. What I proposed wasn't that
drm_vblank_get() was replaced by a new implementation with different
signature. Rather my suggestion was to implement the old
drm_vblank_get() by calling drm_crtc_vblank_get() rather than the other
way around.

Something like this:

	int drm_crtc_vblank_get(struct drm_crtc *crtc)
		new code using CRTC

	int drm_vblank_get(struct drm_device *drm, int crtc)
		struct drm_crtc *c = drm_crtc_from_index(crtc);

		return drm_crtc_vblank_get(c);

On that note, is there a plan to move the vblank fields out of the DRM
device and into drm_crtc as well? That seems like a logical next step
since presumably every CRTC can handle it's own vblank events itself.
